Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for Bayou Magic:

"Bayou Magic revels in friendship, and love while reflecting life in the Deep South. Looking to add diversity to your shelves? Look no farther than the characters that populate Bon Temps and experience the community in which they live."―Booklist

"Maddy is a brave and hopeful heroine, and the descriptions of the bayou are almost as magical as her legacy."―School Library Journal

"Readers will be easily drawn into Rhodes's (Sugar) heady descriptions, and as environmental disaster threatens the landscape Maddy has come to love, her heroism shines as she protects the community and recognizes her own strength."
Publishers Weekly
